Office on 2000

by uarkjones / November 1, 2004 4:07 AM PST

As administrator, I installed Office XP on 10 computers with Windows 2000 OS (computer lab environment). Now, when a user logs in, it starts Windows Installer. Students can usually get around this by hitting "cancel". However, on a couple of machines, it will not load. What have I done wrong - either with Office or 2000?

During your install be sure to avoid any install on demand checkbox. Even so, Microsoft still has most versions of Office install for each new user.

This is not an Operating System issue or related to NT/2000 in any way. It's an Office issue.

Reading material for such an install.
